Worked out on the eliptical.  I managed to get in 60 minutes.  In that 60 minutes, I was able to get my average heart rate to 140.  I burned about 800 calories.  I "ran" almost 5 miles, which equaled 10,800 steps in total.

I like the elliptical trainer too, Chuck. After reading your post, I realized I needed to up my workout. I had hit a plateau. However, I don't think I can do 60 minutes. I can barely do 35 minutes. It's just too boring. I did crank up the wattage to 90 today, so I was able to burn 350 calories in 35 minutes and keep my heartbeat above 120. I "ran" 8.5 miles, but they were bike miles. Then, I lifted weights and then went to my rock climbing class which is a lot of fun, but exhausting!

LOL at the animal pics on the scales!!   ;D

That way, you don't have to know your actual weight, you can just say "I'm down on the duck now"!    :laugh:

Today has been a bad day for me. It's coldish, gray, gloomy, drizzling -- always a recipe for me to seek comfort in carbs. I was craving muffins. So I made a box of blueberry muffins. True, they're Fiber One brand, so not totally unhealthy, but I've eaten five or six of them (they're quite good, but 130 calories apiece).

The weather, particularly at this time of year, has a huge influence over my appetite and eating habits.

The upside: my son and I stopped in at a little bakery, where we bought glazed donuts for him and his brother. I didn't get anything.

Today has been a bad day for me.

Sort of the same for me. Because of the state of company finances, we didn't have a holiday party last month, so today the company threw an in-house "employee appreciation" buffet luncheon in our new auditorium/staff dining room. Oy, did I pig out on the carbs (at least I also had a salad).  :( And they weren't even particularly good-tasting carbs, either. Most of the bread-type stuff was dry. I'm sure Katherine's muffins at least tasted good!

Today was supposed to be a rest day for me after two days of extra exertion, rock climbing, hiking, working out, and snowshoeing. Then, I took my mom with me to the rec center when I went to get my climbing certification, which means I can practice on the climbing wall anytime at no charge. At the end of it, my mom said "but I didn't get to see you climb!" So, then I went for a climb and got all sweaty. But, I enjoyed it!

Tomorrow I'm going for an ice climb, and then I'll have two or three days to do more cardio. And then, oh my brothers and sisters, no more exercises for me for three days. I have to lay off and rest up for the big one: hopefully at least one ascent of that witchy mountain in NH: the weather-maker, yes, Mount Washington, herself!!

Today was a good day for me......the potential to be bad was there, as I ate out for lunch and dinner, but I only had a salad at each meal.
